Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Shhh 13 Dec 2013Kristen Stewart Bags Chanel Campaign

She made girls al over the world jealous by maliciously stealing the part of Bella Swan from every teenager who put themselves in the shoes of the Twilight Saga’s female lead over five years ago, but it seems that this unstoppable force has struck again! The 23 year old, now commonly known for her fondness of baseball caps and that minor issue of an alleged affair with her Snow White And The Huntsman married Director, Rupert Sanders, has now bagged one of the best gigs around – Chanel. On Wednesday, Vogue confirmed that Kristen Stewart will be the new face of iconic and sophisticated brand Chanel, fronting the 2013 Métiers d’Art Paris- Dallas collection. The campaign is set to launch in May 2014. Kristen has faced some scrutiny since the announcement from press and public alike, with many wondering how she will model such a legendary brand being only to show once facial expression to the public – boredom. Those amazing Chanel shoes are pretty big ones to fill, with Kristen’s predecessors including Blake Lively, Keira Knightly and Diane Kruger. Best of luck, Kristen and may the power of Coco be with you!

Kate Winslet and Ned RocknrollBaby Boy Winslet

Kate Winslet gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Saturday 7th December. The 38 year old Oscar-winning actress and her 35-year-old husband, Ned Rocknroll, announced the news through their spokesperson, who said that the couple were “thrilled to bits” with their healthy, 9lb new arrival!  Baby Boy Winslet (who’s name is yet to be disclosed) was born in an NHS hospital in Sussex and the couple’s spokesperson told MailOnline that both are “doing great”. Kate Winslet also has a daughter, Mia, ten, with her first husband, director Jim Threapleton and a son Leo, 9, from her eight year marriage to Sam Mendez, well known for his directorial work on Skyfall and Road To Perdition. Kate and her current husband got together following a whirlwind romance and secret wedding in 2012 at which Titanic co-star and close friend Leonardo DiCaprio walked her down the aisle. Kate met Ned, nephew of Virgin founder Richard Branson, whilst holidaying on his Necker Island. For those of you thinking that he has an awfully original surname and are wondering who to snap up to get yourself one of those, the answer is nobody. Just pop your information onto a Deed Poll form like Ned Abel Smith did before he found it infinitely cooler to become Ned RocknRoll.

David Beckham and Nick GrimshawDavid Beckham Shows His Soft Side

It’s official, David Beckham is possibly the most perfect man. OK, so it’s not confirmed but it is pretty common knowledge. Becks appeared on Radio One’s breakfast show yesterday to have a chat with Nick Grimshaw about his role in Class of ‘92. When talking films, Grimmy shared that he had recently seen the latest Tom Hanks flick, Saving Mr Banks, and told Golden Balls (Grimmy’s decision to ressurect the nickname) that he couldn’t stop crying. David replied by saying that he is “kind of an emotional wreck with movies” and that when he showed his boys (Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz) the trailer to his own movie he “kind of got choked up’. The lovely and at-one-with-his-feelings ex footballer also admitted that he often sheds a tear for episodes of The Office and F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Not only are we happy that he can appreciate F.R.I.E.N.D.S and love that he has a soft and side, but we can’t help but feel that little bit closer to Becks now. Who DOESN’T cry when Rachel gets off the plane? We mean, really?! You can see the interview here.

johnny depp blondJohnny Depp Drops His Pants

Yes, you read this right. The one, the only, Johnny Depp has decided to disregard his trousers on the set of his latest movie, Mortdecai. The scene in which viewers will get a probably welcomed eyeful, involves a scrap between a shaven headed man and a biker. Depp has been papped a fair amount lately and the majority of the focus seems to be on the shift from his luscious signature brunette locks to an interesting blond do! But this time, we’ve all taken a peak at a glimpse of his printed boxers, garters and long red socks. No, honestly. We have. His latest project is based on a popular British book series by novelist Kyril Bonfiglioli. The movie is set to be a bit different from the type of feature we have grown accustom to, with Depp playing a slightly less quirky art dealer, Mortdecai tells the story the art professional who travels the world hunting down a stolen painting said to contain a secret code that will lead to hidden Nazi gold. That being said, it’s still Johnny Depp and he is still sporting a handlebar moustache.

madonna and exMadonna Splits With Boyfriend Of Three Years

After three years together, Madonna’s rep has confirmed that her and her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat have split up. There have been no rumours of infidelity on either part, but Metro reports that a statement from the rep says that “They were dancing and working together all the time, and then they barely saw each other.” Madonna, 55, posted a quote on her Instagram page on Wednesday, saying” “The only way we know we love ourselves and the people in our life is by the agreements we are willing to make and keep”. The couple met at the launch of the Material Girl clothing line when he performed with Madonna’s 17 year old daughter Lourdes. Brahim then secured himself a spot as a dancer on her MDNA tour last year. The split comes as a bit of a shock considering that the pair were spotted less than a week and a half ago in Kabbalah City in New York City with her children Rocco, David and Mercy, however haven’t formerly attended a public event together since May.

Sophia Mead

Sophia Mead

Sophia is a greedy graduate not content with building up her credentials in one half of her joint honours degree. By day, she is a junior PR Executive, racing around trying to conquer the world of public relations but by night frantically taps away at her keyboard, getting lost in the realms of celebrity culture and sharing the stories with her own “Sophia spin”. Sophia is unashamedly obsessed with meaningful quotes and whilst blissfully content with the simple things in life, she’s far too ambitious to ever let them be enough until she is carrying on her person that perfect Chanel bag.
